Update on the depression…

June 19th, 2013 (04:11 pm)

I had to go for a counselling session today – which wasn’t at all what I expected. Apprently the NHS don’t DO one-to-one depression counselling. That’s nice.

Instead of which this woman who said she was a depression therapist (I’m guessing that’s not a ten year medical training post) and has booked me on : (wait for it…)

a “Positive Wellbeing Workshop”

gah. Tell me, anyone who knows ANYTHING about me (even when fit and well and completely undepressed) does this sound like something I’m going to like?

It all sounds a bit happy-clappy to me. I’m betting there will be kum-ba-yaing and group hugs. and ….*shudder* improvisational mime.

and this is SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER????

Ask her what her qualifications are.

The thing MIGHT actually be helpful, but with a title like that, it sound nauseating.

One definition of depression that I've read is "anger turned inward." If so, all this nonsense is at least giving you a chance to turn it OUTWARD, so maybe that's useful, if unintentionally.
